Today, I flew to New Orleans and back to Atlanta!! This was one of the quickest flights that I’ve ever done. Not to mention, it was fairly simple too. I was happy to do this route because it finally has the updated terminal(s). I remember I flew to MSY on the 739 last year and I pulled up to the terminal only to find that there were no gates 😂 I was heated and I never thought about MSY since. It wasn’t until @Ecoops123 told me to take a peek that I seen that they updated MSY. So, @Ecoops123 this one is for you!! Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful day and as always, I’ll see you in the skies 😊

Thank you, and definitely. I love foggy and low visibility approaches!!

That is a question that I cannot answer. What I will tell you is that I go off to college next year and I don’t know if I will be able to fly as much but until then, I’m gonna do as many as I can!!

Thank you. And yes, this was definitely a great flight. The only thing that I didn’t like was that the ATC call outs were not working 🤷🏾‍♂️

Thank you ✊🏾😊
